Why Choose Engineering at Fife College?

A career in Engineering provides great job opportunities within many different industries. Engineers are highly sought after in emerging industries such as renewable energy, pharmaceuticals, digital infrastructure, food and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) production as well as more traditional fields such as mechanical engineering & fabrication and welding. 

From renewable energy courses, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering to learning about robotics and wiring techniques, we have a wide variety that fits your interests and career goals. 

Our Engineering courses are suitable for every level of study, from a basic pre-apprenticeship training course or a certificate in engineering, up to HNC and HND level, which could allow you to progress on to an engineering degree at university.
